There has been a severe outbreak of Tulipmania here at Pear Tree Cottage! Very serious indeed. Last autumn I bought some bulbs from J Parkers and they have been a resounding success.
I was also given some white ones by Tammy from Stockton Bury Gardens which have added to the show and, WHAT a show! I adopted the layering approach and with a very poorly shoulder and in the pouring rain, enlisted Chris's help back in October. Being used to heavy duty manly jobs, he (dare I say?) rather looked down his nose at such a girlie task. We planted, Narcissus, Scilla, Crocus and varieties of Tulips. As each flower faded, I was there deadheading and the show has continued since early last month. Even Chris is impressed with the results.
We have been lucky with such a prolonged sunny spell and I've not stopped admiring them so stand by for some photos!
